The waiter was fantastic, he did a wonderful job! He was the only one at the entire restaurant though, that was too many tables for one person. Food is good too. They only have 3 heaters for the whole patio and those would not even turn on.

Small space was cozy and beautifully decorated, but noise level was high enough that it was occasionally hard to hear at a small table in the middle of the room. Food was hit-and-miss, mussels and short ribs were good, goat cheese beignets were wonderful. But other orders were overly salted, overly sweet, or in the case of the Caesar, too fishy to eat. Service was almost non-existent. Only one server plus the bartender for the entire restaurant. Took 30 minutes from being seated and a lot of waving at the server to finally get to order dinner. Would have ordered appetizers but by that point the interest had passed.

Monday night special was a great deal. Bottle wine selections was large and we were able to find one of our favorites to pair with the Pear & Gorgonzola Pizza. The Caesar salad was good but a bit heavy on the anchovy - not a problem for me but wife wasn’t able to tolerate it as much.

Service was great and friendly.

We enjoyed our dinner at Cru! The grilled cheese app was great, we had the filet and truffle/mushroom pizza and they were both great. We will definitely come back

Decided to try out Cru food and wine bar with a friend and we were very impressed! We had wonderful service, amazing food, and we’re able to hear some of the live music at Watters Creek while we were eating. I will definitely come back!

Dinner date for my boyfriend’s birthday! The ambiance was cozy and romantic. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The wine flights were fun to try. There were people chatting but it was quiet enough to have conversations. Will definitely be back.

Prosecco selections were nice and the service wasting as usual However, the paired plates were a bit questionable and seemed rushed.

We got there and our server took a little bit to take our order, we got an appetizer and a pizza, got the appetizer and the pizza never arrived. When I reached out to a server and asked about the pizza , they forgot to submit the order and the kitchen was already closed . This was just awful in my opinion, we were waiting to have our dinner. We will never come back after this experience .

Overall, our food was good but we were disappointed in the meatball appetizer as far as the taste. The roasted halibut entree was not the best we’ve had. The fish was way over cooked and the sweet pea risotto was very al dente. It definitely could have used a few more minutes of cooking. The beef tenderloin pizza was great and the hi light of the meal

Loved the appetizer and dessert; the main course (including one of the Chef's specials) was good but not great. Wine list was interesting. Server was friendly & enthusiastic, but did not seem to know much about the wine list. The bill was WAY more than it should have been for the quality of food & wine served.
